Davel, Paula Kay (Marriage - 28 October 1967)

The Very Rev. Norbert E. King of Loyal officiated October 28 at a 1 p.m. ceremony in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church in Loyal uniting in marriage Miss Paula Kay Davel of Milwaukee daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Paul A. Davel of Loyal and Dale Andrew Maki, of West Allis.

St. Anthony’s school choir sang nuptial songs, and was accompanied at the organ by Sister Johnson. Bouquets of yellow and gold and bronze chrysanthemums graced the altar. A bouquet of yellow roses was placed at the feet of the blessed Virgin.

A floor-length bridal gown of white satin styled with an A-line skirt and an empire bodice that featured re-embroidered Alencon lace appliqués was selected by the bride. The re-embroidered appliqués were repeated on the elbow-length sleeves. The detachable chapel-length train had scattered Alencon lace insertion motifs and was finished with two wide bands of lace insertion at its base. Custom-made lace covered an open crown pillbox, which held her elbow-length three-tier English silk illusion veil. She carried a traditional cascade arrangement of phalaenopsis orchids and bourvardia, with the natural foliage.

Mrs. Ronald Lawson of Milwaukee, as matron-of-honor, and the Misses Elizabeth Sustman and Lois Hartl, both of Milwaukee, preceded the bride into the church. They were seen in floor-length gold satin gowns, styled with A-line skirts topped with empire bodices, capped by velvet jackets in a darker shade of gold. Their gowns also featured portrait collars and elbow-length sleeves. Each carried a sheath cascade arrangement of bronze daisy chrysanthemums and yellow pompons with accents of salad leaves.

Dana Davel, sister of the bride, as flowergirl, carried a wicker basket with yellow and gold pompons.

Bestman was Gerald Arlt of Milwaukee. Serving as groomsmen were Peter Davel, brother of the bride, of Whitewater, and Ronald Lawson of Milwaukee. Ushers were Paul Kauppinen of Milwaukee and Scott Davel of Loyal.

A reception was held in a supper club near Loyal.

The bride is a 1963 graduate of Loyal High School and attended Wisconsin State University-Eau Claire, where she was affiliated with Tri Sigma Sorority. She is employed as a teller in the Bank of Milwaukee and Trust Co.

Mr. Maki, a 1963 graduate of South Division High School in Milwaukee, attended Milwaukee Business School and has served four years in the Air Force. He is in programming with an accounting firm in Milwaukee.

On their return from a wedding trip into western states, Mr. and Mrs. Maki will reside at 1603 West Ohio St. Milwaukee.
